Spring at Mansfield Museum

Spring is coming and, as ever, brings with it plenty of interest here at the Museum.

The first week of the Easter Holidays will see simple children's craft activities based on the theme of Spring including ‘Spring-time chick puppets' and 'Paper Spring Wreaths'.

From Monday 9 April to Saturday 14 April there will be a week of health and wellbeing activities for all the family as we hold our second annual health and wellbeing festival. The six-day festival - Fitness, Food and Fun will bring together a host of providers, with the aim of helping local people make the right choices across a variety of healthy living issues. It includes the chance to try Hotpod yoga, join a health walk around Town or learn all about sugar from the Sugar Scientists.

Follow this link for a timetable of what is on offer during the festival, including displays, workshops and experiences to help your family find out how to make your lives healthier and happier.

As part of local events to mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War, we are delighted to announce that a prestigious display of memorabilia from the local Mercian Regiment - formerly the Sherwood Foresters - will be on show from June to November. The Museum of the Mercian Regiment (WFR Collection) is usually housed at Nottingham Castle. But while the Castle is redeveloped, the items will be moving to a temporary home at Mansfield Museum.

'Remembering WW1 - Museum of the Mercian Regiment on Tour' will be on show from Saturday 9 June until Saturday 24 November, giving local people easy access to the collection’s splendours. Several special events, including Meet a Soldier and a peace picnic plus many other activities for young and old, are planned as part of the collection’s visit to the town.

So why not pop down to the Museum and see what we have to offer?
